Law & Order: SVU Season 23 Episode 8 Recap
The eighth episode, titled ‘Nightmares in Drill City,’ opens with a report on a 17-year-old girl named Tori who was left abandoned in an alley. She was in a car with Jasmine and two men who later stole her cash. Even the people at the party Tori was about to attend were killed except for Chris Miller. He states that there was another girl present, but Tori, who seems to have been sexually abused, is reluctant to talk. She later reveals that she was forced by a famous rapper named G, whose YouTube channel reveals a place where Tori allegedly was tortured.
When SVU arrests G, he claims that it is Tori who is responsible for the ruckus. A ballistics report proves that David Graham, aka G, murdered Chris’ friends, but Tori’s innocence is still questionable. According to her statement, Tori had been involved in an abusive relationship with G, and he also roped her into sex trafficking without her consent. She was obliged to always follow his orders. Seeing her coiled up in a desperate situation, Benson and Rollins decide to fight for Tori and get G arrested.
Tori is offered a deal of 10 years in prison if she pleads guilty, or else she is looking at 25 years of imprisonment. However, she rejects the deal, still adamant about claiming her innocence. Benson suggests they should try and change Jasmine’s opinion about Tori in order to get the murder charges against her dropped. Fin explains to Jasmine how G is the villain in the matter. When she finally understands, she retracts her statement, and both of them ultimately end up being charged for robbery with 10 years of probation.
